National Gun Violence Awareness Day

On June 1, we honored all lives taken and injured by gun violence as part of National Gun Violence Awareness Day. All around the country, people came together to spread a simple message: there is more we can do to end gun violence. Youth Over Guns commissioned by Erica Ford was the focus as the power of orange was evident on the Brooklyn Bridge. Moms Demand Action for Better Gun Sense in America started marching over the Brooklyn Bridge and wearing orange on this particular day. When high school student Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed in 2013, her friends turned their grief into action, and transformed orange into the color of gun violence prevention. And every year, for Hadiya’s birthday, we wear orange to show our collective power.

Our communities continue to be devastated by gun violence. Our country, our students, and our children deserve more than this. We are still grieving, and we are still fighting. Join the fight by texting 644-33 and type JOIN. Moms Demand Action for Better Gun Sense in America will reply and connect you to a Chapter near you. You can also click the link provided

“With Love we will bring awareness and curtail our grieving communities.”
